How can I be sure I have properly uninstalled software?

Q: How can I be sure I have properly uninstalled software? Some junk on my pc doesn’t have an uninstall option or it has been corrupted.

I’m not savvy enough but I think sometimes trying out a new package for a similar operation (eg a different free dvd burner) corrupts the one I was using before. I get into trouble trying to save or replace what i lost and in the process I end up with a lot of junk.
